When Bakelite was first introduced in the early 1900's tortoise was created to mimic real tortoise shell. Now we are mimicking Bakelite! These marbled earrings feature translucent brown and black. The posts are inset into the earring for a clean seamless look. These tortoise earrings are modeled after classic vintage Bakelite jewelry from the past, without the worry of damaging a rare original.
The earrings are made of hand cast dyed resin, and attached to sterling silver posts and hypoallergenic backs. The earrings measures 1/2" round. Each item is handmade and may differ slightly from those pictured.
